photo Wade Culbreath
This week is opening week for LACO. The office has been super busy, the phones have been ringing nonstop and the Orchestra is back in rehearsals. I wanted to share some images with you of the first week back in rehearsal as well as the first weekend pair of performances.
The photo above was taken by our principal timpanist, Wade Culbreath at rehearsal. I particularly love this picture because it shows the interplay between some amazing musicians as well as some incredible baroque instruments… from the back. You can see Margaret Batjer playing solo violin. You can also see the top of the Theorbo (the big one on the left) and the baroque guitar on the right.
Opening night at the Alex Theatre was tonight, and it was amazing! You could just feel the electricity in the air. If you missed, it, there is still time to catch opening night at Royce Hall Sunday evening at 7 pm. Hope to see you there!
